The Los Angeles Lakers are prepared to offer DeMar DeRozan a max contract in the offseason starting at $25 million per season.

DeRozan can decline his player option with the Toronto Raptors to become a free agent.

Replacing DeRozan would be difficult for the Raptors but there is a succession plan with Terrence Ross at shooting guard.

Masai Ujiri re-signed every core player when he was general manager of the Denver Nuggets and re-signing DeRozan at the max would become its own litmus test.
